New 61-Megapixel Imaging Colorimeter for Light and Display Measurement
09 Sep 2021
For over 25 years, ProMetric® Imaging Colorimeters & Photometers from Radiant Vision Systems have provided industry-leading imaging performance for test & measurement of light-emitting components.
Now available in resolutions up to 61 megapixels, the new ProMetric® I61 Imaging Colorimeter captures millions more data points per measurement, maximizing precision while increasing measurement accuracy (up to 76 dB dynamic range) and speed (as fast as 0.5 sec per photopic measurement).
ProMetric I Imaging Colorimeters are applied for visual inspection of light-emitting components in labs and production lines. Each ProMetric I system has an internal tristimulus color filter system that ensures color measurement accuracy with the closest spectral sensitivity to standard CIE color-matching functions, describing light perception of a standard human observer. Utilizing this color filter method, the imaging colorimeter can leverage the full resolution of its internal sensor for imaging, capturing three (or more) full-resolution images for each color channel and combining these into a single, full-color image without data loss. This ensures both the highest resolution and highest accuracy for measurements of light emitting components, enabling measurement of smaller constituent elements across larger fields of view (for instance, millions of pixels in a display, or multiple backlit features on a large instrument panel).
In a single measurement image, the ProMetric I captures a complete view of the device under test, applying several measurement and analysis functions to evaluate all critical visual properties of the device. Output measurement values include luminance, illuminance, CIE chromaticity (xy, u’v’), L*a*b* color scale, Correlated Color Temperature (CCT), and dominant wavelength.
Visual inspection is also possible, including evaluation of mura and defects in displays—or position, rotation, size, distortion, ghosting, and other factors (common in backlit components as well as projection displays like augmented reality, virtual reality, and head-up displays).
